Re: Small diameter HEI Distributor
I had a stock GM HEI on my 67 SBC (327). It cleared just fine. If its issues with being able to set the timing by rotating the distributor, and the ""bump" on the distributor cap is hitting the firewall, you can rotate the distributor to the left, and simply use a different "number one" spark plug position. Then follow the correct firing order for the remainder of the spark plug wires to spark plugs.
If this is a SBC engine, it should have clearance, unless the 68 has some sort of different firewall that the 67's did not have.
Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
